There are formal prom hairstyles which can change the look of your face. If you have medium length wavy hair it would be a good idea to add more waves at the ends and have an open hair look. The waves can fall over the shoulders. You could keep arranging your hair with your hands to bounce it up as and when you feel so. Make sure to get your hair style in place when you pose for a photograph. One must remember that updo hairstyles can give you a weighty feeling and hence it would be good to try out the hairstyle earlier to see if the same is manageable.
Prom hairstyles can be explored with hair colours. Chic cuts never go out of fashion and if you have a curly bob you could use some glitter and spray the hair to keep it in place. Learning the right way to blow dry your hair is necessary. Using the right amount of conditioner and the perfect shampoo is the primary necessity before trying new hairstyles. Hairstyles in waves, curls, poker straight hair or shaggy ones go well with prom gowns.
